Cutting and Condensing Gutta-Percha
Use Ultrasonics to cut and condense gutta percha with excellent results.
The most common technique to cut and condense Gutta-Percha requires the use of expensive heating instruments. These may cost thousands of dollars and have no use in other daily procedures. A simple, fast and inexpensive way to do it is using ultrasonics – the heat produced by the ultrasonic tip is enough to cut and condense the material. The final results are very similar and the procedure can be done with the same ultrasonic unit already in use in other steps of the treatment.

“I have been impressed with the responsiveness and quality of the Helse ultrasonic tips. They are my go to tips for custom bent apical surgery tips. I routinely use them for non-surgical endodontic therapy and have been impressed with their durability and quality. .”
